New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons

Patriots: 16-2-0
Falcons: 13-5-0
When: 6:30 PM ET, Sunday, February 5, 2017
Where: NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas

The lines for turnovers in this game is set at 1.5 each for fumbles and interceptions.

Both the Falcons and the Patriots have been consistently excellent at forcing turnovers down the stretch.

New England has forced a turnover in eight straight games and have had at least two in seven of them.

In their two playoff games they forced one fumble and one interception versus Pittsburgh. And against Houston it was three interceptions.

They also coughed the ball up three times versus Houston with Tom Brady throwing two interceptions. That total matched his entire output for the rest of the 13 games he’s started this year. The Patriots didn’t have a turnover versus Pittsburgh.

Since Brady came back into the lineup they’ve only had four games where they’ve had any turnovers. But they had multiple turnovers in each. It came against Pittsburgh (regular season), Seattle, Baltimore and Houston (playoffs).

Atlanta has forced a turnover in ten straight games and forced two each in their playoff games. They managed to intercept Russell Wilson twice and had one interception on Aaron Rodgers and one fumble recovery versus Green Bay.

Alternatively, they’ve gone four straight without an interception. Before then the Falcons had one turnover in six out of eight games.

The bottom line though is that both of these teams have gotten this far in great part because of how well they protect the ball on offense and force turnovers on defense. The challenge will be huge for both defenses and I don’t think we can expect multiple turnovers in this one.
